Cheap, derivative action fare
12 May 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

ASSASSINS' CODE really is a boring action B-movie. It feels like one of those cheap straight-to-video efforts from the 1990s, although it was made in 2011; for a thriller, it's amateurish in the extreme, and almost totally devoid of suspense or decent action scenes.

Despite the title, the plotting is along the lines of the old 'retrieve the computer disk' variety. Some of the characters are supposed to be North Korean agents, but none of it rings true. I appreciate that they went ahead and cast a few Asian actors in lead roles, but none of them give the kind of decent performances you'd expect even from this type of movie.

What we do get are a whole lot of mindless shoot-out scenes with dull choreography, and various cameos from old genre stars: Martin Kove, Richard Moll, John Savage, Christopher Atkins. There's no real reason to tune in.
